Movie Review: Knight and Day


My Rating: 4Stars

This afternoon I saw the movie Knight and Day at AMC Cinemas, Pacific Place, Admiralty, Hong Kong. One of the movies from my Must See Movies list.

The leads in this movie are Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz who had one of their best performances of both careers.

Cruise had matured as an actor and this time he did not play an amateur spy role as he did in the Mission Impossible franchises. Although Diaz still plays her cute girl next door character as she did in the Charlie Angels franchises, this time she has a much more mature role. This may be due to both actors being older than when both stared in the respective franchises.

The stunts were impressive, fresh and believable. The plot is not that original and is like most spy movies, with reasonable amount of twists and suspense to keep the audience engaged. Additional entertainment factor was the results of the chemistry that Cruise and Diaz portrayed which also served to give the movie the comedy aspect that made this movie fun.

If you are looking for a light romance suspenseful comedy, then this is the movie for you.

  1. Vinko, thx for the review. BTW, you might want to fix the URL of the trailer, which points to Prince of Persia instead of Knight & Day.
